Home-To-Work and Return Travel
Employer's Vehicle

Employers often allow employees to use a company vehicle for home-to-work and return travel. These vehicles can be of two types:

1. Vehicles which would normally be used for commuting, such as a

  • car,
  • pickup truck, or
  • van (including mini-van) OR

2. Vehicles which would not normally be used for commuting, such as a

  • bus,
  • 10-wheel dump truck,
  • trailer/tractor rig,
  • truck-mounted crane, or
  • oil well drilling equipment.

Is the vehicle you provide your employee for home-to-work travel the type of vehicle that is normally used for commuting?
